Feed Importer - include also media tags



We should be possible to define also "own" html => bb Handlers without using the code event system.

For example check this feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/TrailerSchautManBeiTrailerzonede

Content tag:
<object width="853" height="505"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/_InWk8-jjLk?fs=1&amp;hl=de_DE&amp;rel=0&amp;hd=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/_InWk8-jjLk?fs=1&amp;hl=de_DE&amp;rel=0&amp;hd=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="853" height="505"></embed></object><p><img src='http://www.trailerzone.de/wp-content/plugins/simple-post-thumbnails/timthumb.php?src=/wp-content/thumbnails/1202.jpg&amp;w=200&amp;h=130&amp;zc=1&amp;ft=jpg' alt='post thumbnail' /></p> 
<p><strong><img class="alignright size-full wp-image-1203" title="Meine Erfundene Frau Trailer" src="http://www.trailerzone.de/wp-content/uploads/meine_erfundene_frau.jpg" alt="Meine Erfundene Frau Trailer" width="163" height="231" />Genre:</strong> Komödie &#8211; USA 2010<br />

As you see, it contains a youtube video.
Even i have a youtube media tag, the feedimporter just ignores this, and my post is:
<img src="http://www.trailerzone.de/wp-content/plugins/simple-post-thumbnails/timthumb.php?src=/wp-content/thumbnails/1190.jpg&amp;w=200&amp;h=130&amp;zc=1&amp;ft=jpg" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[IMG]" /><br />

That's really going to be a challenge to process generally, as there are so many different forms for this stuff to take; our snippets definitely don't fit with the "default" ones. We don't even keep track (explicitly) of the actually swf/flv URL, so it's not easy to pull it out of that. There's some scope for it, but it would involve a fair bit more configuration for a fairly rare case, IMO.


A quick reminder :whistle: Seems like some of us would like to get this included.
I appeal again to the devs. Please, do not forget us. Thanks a lot

MediaRSS would be really great, but to extend on this feature request, I could also imagine to add OPML support.
OPML makes it possible to combine multiple MediaRSS feeds into one OPML feed.

You have 3 subforums serving as showrooms for your users.
One subforum for photography, one for illustrations and paintings and one for 3D rendered images.

Wouldn't it be great to provide a feed that contains all three MediaRSS feeds in one? OPML could provide just that.
